We use JavaScript heavily throughout the Widen Collective. If the pages or components of your site don't load properly, it could be due to a JavaScript error. These errors can be caused by conflicting browser extensions, browser security settings, or other issues.

To help the Widen Central Support team identify issues and provide a resolution, please provide a screenshot of the error in JavaScript Console of your browser.

Capture errors

After opening the Console, you may have to refresh the page to capture the error.

Error lines are the most significant portion of the Console. You may need to scroll to see them. They'll be identified with red text or they'll be highlighted.

Take a screenshot of the entire browser window, including the Console, with any error lines that display.
